MSP received the first patent with a 3D model

Mikhailyuk, Sorokolat and Partners received the first Russian patent for an industrial design using a three-dimensional model of an object.

The amendments into the Russian legislation came into force on January 17, 2021 as was informed earlier, thanks to which it became possible to file an application for registration of an invention / utility model / industrial design and trademark using three-dimensional models. The 3D model is a relatively new and innovative solution in the registration of intellectual property objects. Using advanced information technologies, inventors can most fully disclose the essence of their developments, and experts can better understand the essence when assessing the patentability and scope of the rights granted.
